Agility combine attributes from obstacle courses, sprint and Grand Prix jumping. Dogs jump through tunnels, leap hurdles, walk carefully across elevated balance beams and climb tall a-frames. The various obstacles require body awareness, balance coordination, agility and athleticism.
This fast paced sport has increased steadily in popularity through the years, primarily because it's fun for the dogs, dog owners and the audience.
Many dog trainers incorporate agility as part of their training classes because it's a wonderful tool for dogs and owners. When dog owners learn how to teach their dogs to jump through tire jumps, they are also learning how to teach their dogs. The dogs learn how to learn while also learning body awareness, where their feet are positioned, and how to balance themselves.
The dogs and owners also build a trust and confidence in themselves and each other.
